It’s the home buying season. Everywhere I look, people are sprucing up their homes and yards, and I’ve lost count of the open house signs I’ve passed this week.
This year promises to be busy, especially this spring. With rates predicted to rise by year’s end, many home buyers and sellers are jumping into the market. That means many properties will be available and the competition will be tough for the best ones. How do you prepare? Do your research, and get some experts on your side.
One program that can help you stay ahead of the changing market is HomeAdvantage. It provides online research with complete access to the MLS listings, and its tools help you to find neighborhoods, schools, and prices that match your needs.
Once you have an idea of what you want in a new home, enter your location on the HomeAdvantage website and it will search its network of experienced agents. You can contact them and take advantage of their expertise in locating the best property for you — and get expert advice in negotiating a contract.
When you are ready to buy, we’re here with an online mortgage application and expert loan officers to guide you through the process.
The best part is, if you use a HomeAdvantage network agent to buy or sell a home, you’ll qualify for a reward that can help reduce closing costs and realtor commissions — or you can take it in cash.
Even if you never bought or sold property before, you don’t have to count on beginner’s luck. HFCU and HomeAdvantage can help with solid advice and information from start to finish — and a little financial help to begin your life as a homeowner.
